Overview

Course Description: 

A strong void exists in the Orthodox Jewish world in the realm of sexual education. Many of the societal norms are incongruent with the Orthodox Jewish worldview and the literature is sparse in dealing with the topic. Sexual education is often avoided by many parents and this leaves their children feeling in the dark and having to teach themselves about sexuality via Google or misinformed friends. The results of this reality range from simple misinformation transfer to heartache and disaster. Mental health professionals often work with Orthodox Jewish teens and their parents and see the sexual education deficiencies, yet, do not feel appropriately trained or able to discuss this topic with parents and clients.

This course is designed for those wishing to learn a culturally sensitive Orthodox Jewish approach towards sexuality. It teaches the Orthodox Jewish view, based on the traditions of the Torah (Bible) and based on principles endorsed by leading Orthodox Jewish rabbis and mental health professionals with a focus on cultural sensitivity and open dialog. It presents a clear, pragmatic and empowering approach toward Orthodox Jewish teen sexuality. It provides an easy to follow format for educating both parents and with their permission (as is culturally appropriate to obtain), giving over this information to Orthodox Jewish teens.

The Kedusha (literally: sanctity) Talk refers to a discussion of culturally sensitive concepts of Jewish Orthodox sexuality and kedusha, sanctity related to sexuality. This course will cover adolescent puberty development and Orthodox Jewish challenges, concerns and ideals related to sexuality. It will provide a framework for messages that can be shared and explained, with a how to guide that takes you from start to finish as well as troubleshooting the five most common areas of concern that arise in this process.

This course will show how parents, school- and office-based therapists working with Orthodox Jewish clients, can better understand, respect and communicate about Orthodox Jewish sexuality. This will greatly enhance the Orthodox Jewish teen’s understanding of sexuality and will provide a healthy and culturally sensitive foundation for their understanding of sexuality.

Learning Objectives:

  1. Participants will learn about the theory and culturally sensitive challenges and goals of discussing sexuality with Orthodox Jewish parents and teens.
  2. Participants will learn how to communicate and educate culturally sensitive lessons related to Orthodox Jewish sexuality.
  3. Participants will learn how to answer questions as well as integrate Orthodox Jewish sexuality religious beliefs into the treatment process.
